this morning about contractors i said in 2006 as director of the agency. it was about us and not contractors. my affiliation with michael chertoff was made quite public, and i do identify myself as a member of the chertoff group in any public discourse. with regard to the ig report, i will take no ownership over that. i was one of the 200 people who were interviewed. there were some people who were not interviewed, and there was another group who was interviewed but not further identified. that might reflect something the secretary said earlier, that you have people who are taking a serious risk by doing the patriotic thing. i was surprised as director of cia how much american business will put themselves at risk for no profit motive in order to assist american intelligence agencies. what you may be seen there is a version of trying to protect them from the kind of legal actions or public criticism that seems to be more prominent in recent times. cia does not live isolated inside the broader american political culture. one of our in advantages is to rely on us as a society to help us achieve

people. poverty is created by the system that we built around us so how to change that system. and this is -- the timing was very right of this award for me because the whole world is going through the financial crisis. and inside everybody feels the system is not right but they don't know what would be the right one. and i kind ofxiç gave my views about what could be the right one. this is the one occasion that we should be paying a lot of attention to how to redesign, retool the system so that we don't follow the same way of making our life proceed. rather, we create a different structure so that we don't fall in the same ditch over and over again and make it worse over time. so this is a call that i gave. this is the deepest of the crisis, but it is the greatest opportunity. the opportunity part has to be emphasized. this is forgotten most of the time because we're so busy fixing things. it's not fixing getting back to the same old thing. it's the resigning the -- redesigning going to the next big thing. going back to the same normalcy that you're used to. so we shouldn't
figured out how to use technology across the board. i was going to jump in here. i was once told that higher education is really where innovation in terms of innovation technology starts. if they really discover it has lots of potential in different markets, it may move on to the federal government. that may go to state and local government. then it may make it into k through 12. what is the role of using technology and taking research and using it to innovate new uses for technology? >> if you look across higher education, particularly in the case of george mason, you see things going on across the board. you see it in the school of information technology and engineering, the college of science, the school of public policy. you also see it in the geography department and many others. i could spend a long time listing all of the places. innovation in terms of developing and using technology is part of what we do. in the early days of computing, almost all of the innovation in terms of the new technologies came out of universities. over the years, it became where some can of the u
there was always a guy who would stand up in front and say, the way -- we know how children learn and that used to make me crazy, just to start the conversation, i wanted to say, you know how they learn every hour of the day? do you know how every child learns? but, then he'd say they learn by doing things not by being lectured to, if someone tills things, don't absorb itted as quickly or easily or maybe not at all and i used to nod my head and said that is righted, why are you in the front of the room telling us things and i don't want to tell you things, i hope we'll discuss that as well. so i got -- i think the start of the book, really, is -- i have two kids who went through public school and before they even got, got interested in what the schools were like -- got in, i got interested in what the schools were like and, you know, got called an educational activist and that means i cared about it. not for my kids as for the whole environment of the place. and my central question, really, was, what is this about? why do we do this and send these kids to this building on one side of town and w

component of a broader plan. so, let's just talk -- let's just use the example of making sure that insurance companies are treating their customers right. one way that we're doing this in this health reform bill is very directly through insurance reforms. we're saying to them, you have to take people with pre-existing conditions, you cannot have caps on lifetime expenses or yearly expenses that people bump up against and suddenly have to pull out a lot of money out of pocket that they may not have, so we're putting in place a whole bunch of insurance reforms that regulate the behavior of the insurance companies. now, alongside that, if there's a public option that is also offering a good deal to consumers, then the insurance companies have to look over their shoulder and say gosh, if the public option is providing that good of a deal to consumers, then maybe we can't just charge exorbitant rates and mistreat our consumers. so it gives them a benchmark from which to operate. now, my point is, this is sort of like the belt and suspenders concept to keep up your pants. the insurance reforms are
